Maa Kaalratri - Preserver of the Good and Slayer of the Evil

She sits in an upright position astriding a donkey (Gadarbh) and emits fire while breathing. She has four hands - the left two hands holds a scimitar (Katar) and thorn like Cleaver (Vajra) to eradicate the evil and bad, while her right hands are in Abhaya and Varada Mudras to bless the pure and good. Such is the glory of her name that just chanting it is enough to make the evil forces disappear.

Rules for Worshipping Maa Kaalratri

Goddess Kaalratri is worshipped on Seventh day of Navratri and is worshipped in two ways - Navratri Puja (followed generally on all days of Navratri) and Tantra Puja. The rules that are to be followed during Tantra Puja are as follows:

  • Just like previous days in Navratri, general Puja for Maa Kaalratri is the same. However, Tantra Puja for the Goddess must be done under specific instructions from expert scholars.
  • The best time for performing Puja to worship the Goddess is during midnight.
  • Tantra Puja is very effective for destroying the evil and bad.
